We could really use a new "General Hospital"
email me if you're interested in helping out!
have to do is watch the show and write up a detailed
description of what happened. You don't have to be a great
writer, just a competent one.
I'm still enjoying watching "Doctor Who"
on Saturdays, even though sometimes it's kind of dumb and
not very logical any more. The new Doctor has grown on me a
I still love "Once Upon a Time" on Sundays. I'm looking
forward to seeing Gold as a hero again! I don't like seeing
King Arthur as a bad guy, though.
"The Good Wife" really should be called "The Great Wife"
because it's really great. I'm loving seeing Jeffrey Dean
Morgan on there! He's always awesome and sexy, and this
looks like a particularly fun character.
This past weekend, I spent a lot of time working on the
site, catching up on everything! Make sure to check out our
Reviews Page where we have a lot of DVD and new TV show
reviews. Also, I put up lots of our
interviews with TV
As always, we made our weekly
Primetime News Pages.
This week's page is here and
next week's will be here.
I have more interviews coming. Tuesday I interviewed Marianne Jean-Baptiste,
star of "Blindspot" on NBC. She was great for years on
"Without a Trace," and then this past year, she was on the
second season of "Broadstreet" (Where she used her real
accent for a change!). I have to admit that I had a
little trouble understanding her on the call. Thank goodness
they provide a transcript for it!
Monday I'm interviewing Marina Squerciati from "Chicago PD!"
That should be a fun one.
"Castle" was interesting
this week, but it had kind of a convoluted story.
"The Big Bang Theory" is always good, but I think they missed
the point of a filk song. It's more like, fans just sitting
around, having fun, singing fake fan songs. It's not about
having a band. It was funny, sure, but kinda dumb. Of
course it makes no sense that Sheldon is so upset about
Leonard moving out or that Penny and Leonard
him by Leonard agreeing to stick around longer. I know a lot
of fans, of all types, many of them very weird, but I've
never seen that situation. Now, Stuart living with
Bernadette and Howard because he's poor and can't afford to
move out -- that I have seen! Many times. On the other hand,
if he's so poor, then how does he own a comic book store?
That makes no sense. Only on TV! He would have been bankrupt
long ago. Now, I would say that all that matters is whether
it's funny or not... but if the show is set in the real
world and pretends to be real, then it should be believable.
Otherwise you spend more time going, "What?" than you do
It looks like Jay Garrick is going to be around for a
while on "The Flash," which is great!! I love it. Didn't the
super-villain this week look a lot like Pauly Shore? He sure
did to me. I wasn't at all surprised that Zoom turned out to
be the Harrison Wells of that other Earth. Presumably he's
still the guy from the future that took over Harrison Wells'
identity. Poor Wells, he gets murdered by Thawne in two
worlds! I'm very glad that we get to see more
Tom Cavanaugh, though!
As usual, parts of "Family Guy" were funny... at least
it's had some good jokes. That's the best we can ever say of
it. It's a comedy, so that's all that really matters. This
one never has tried to be in the least bit realistic.
I'm glad Michael Chiklis has joined "Gotham," so far, but
I didn't like Jim and Harvey throwing guys out the window.
That was not a good guy thing to do. How can I root
for the good guys to win if they're killers? Maybe they were
on the second floor so the poor guys didn't die. I hope so!
Having cops come
in straight from the police academy to become a special
"strike force" is not too realistic...even for a show about
super heroes and super villains. Remember how Ben
McKenzie (Jim) played a rookie cop in "Southland?" He had to
ride along with a senior cop for a while until he learned
how things worked. Cops from the academy are green. You
can't just turn them loose like soldiers who came straight
from boot camp! Normally I wouldn't judge a superhero
about realism, but hey, "Gotham" has mostly been a
really great show, so I expect a little more from it.
I hope you got to see FX's "Fargo" start its second
season this week because it's really outstanding. It's
definitely one of the best shows on TV. I'm glad it's an
anthology show, though, because I never got around to
finishing last season! So now I can start off fresh with
this season. It's really really good.
Last week I watched another new show "The Last Kingdom"
on BBC America. I enjoyed that a lot. I might have to start
watching it regularly. It's kind of like "The Bastard
Executioner" or "The Vikings" but without nearly as much
violence. I've read it compared to "Game of Thrones," too,
but I haven't seen GoT. I'm guessing it's less violent than
that one, too. It's just better. More British.
Since last week, I've been watching "Days of Our Lives" a
little bit as well as "Young & The Restless" (as well as
still watching "The Bold & Beautiful").
You may wonder why I'm not also watching "General Hospital,"
which has been my favorite for years? Well, I'm behind on it and don't want to sneak ahead.
"Days of Our Lives" has been far too violent and depressing.
It was very sad to see Will get killed off, and all of the
people who love him finding out about it and getting sad,
crying etc. Today with Sami was very hard. I'm only
watching it while I run the
sometimes...I didn't feel like
having the quiet or putting something else on, like music. I
don't think I'll keep up with either show regularly...
Y&R has been fun to watch because of everyone finding out
that Gabe is Adam, and now Chloe returning to the show (I
hope she comes back permanently!), and I sure hope Devon
finds Hillary soon because the story with him and Neil et
al. is really tedious. It seems pretty obvious that
Cane was the one in the park who took the ransom money (I
have no idea why). I think I read that Victor is going to
prove that Adam didn't run down Delia, that it was really
Gabe. I don't know if that's speculation, a rumor or a real
spoiler. I always keep tabs on what's been happening
with the shows, even though I'm not watching them daily...
Oh, and it's great that Michael E. Knight (Tad from "All
My Children") is on the show! This looks like a
short-term character, though... I hope not.
FYI -- On yesterday's Y&R
description on my cable, it says "Devon takes the lawn into
his hands...." Ha ha!!
I think Trevor Noah is doing a pretty good job with "The
Daily Show!" He's good at doing funny voices, that's for
sure. I think he's getting a little better at his new job
I have another small stack of 6 DVD's and about 7 new
shows to review! It never ends...
I had to take care of some non-TV stuff this week, so I
got way behind on running our
daytime TV transcripts.
It took me a few days, but I'm almost caught up now!
I'm glad that "Supernatural" finally addressed the fact
that people are still dying, even though they killed "Death"
last season! They didn't explain it, but at least they
mentioned it. Poor Cass and Sam. Evil demon baby? Hmm,
that's a new one....that was one cute baby! I loved
Crowley's line: "I'm not your sidekick!" He always has so
many hilarious lines.
This week's "South Park"
was fun. It was all about Yelp
reviewers. I enjoyed it a lot. Especially the very end when
they had a song...hilarious! Their best
episode in a long
while. I read elsewhere that they had a very similar song in
season 16. I don't remember that one, so well done on their
I'm really bummed that "Beauty
& The Beast," "Defiance" and "Dominion" have been
canceled....at least BATB has one more season left. I don't
completely blame the networks, though. These shows had low
ratings. It pays to remember, as I said last week, that most
TV shows do get canceled within a few years. TV
networks canceled like 65% of their new shows every year! So
if a show gets 3-5 years it's done very well.
If you love "Longmire" and want to see Netflix bring it
back for season 5, then please watch it repeatedly on
Make sure to rate it highly. You can also rate it on
It might also help if you tweet about it and visit the
Longmire groups and pages on Facebook and make comments, say
you want it back for the 5th season. Thanks! Make sure you
check it out because it's a very good show. I think season 4
may be their best.
Hope you have a great weekend!
